Effect of Rashba Spin-Orbit Coupling on the Spin Polarization of Holes in Two-Dimensional GaMnAs Magnetic Semiconductors

Languages of publication
We consider the effect of the Rashba spin-orbital coupling in two-dimensional GaAs semiconductor heavily doped with Mn, on the spin polarization of holes. Due to the strong internal spin-orbit interaction in GaAs, the spin of a hole is not a good quantum number but the hole in some energy state has a certain mean value of spin, which can be strongly affected by the Rashba spin-orbital interaction related to the substrate for 2D material.
